I think the picture just needs sharpening (i.e. contrast adjust etc) - maybe a few tweeks here and there - nothing drastic is needed here to bring the picture back to life!

IMO the image needs a curve layer to increase overall contrast and would probably benefit from the face and hands darkening with another curve layer.

You will probably want to remove paper texture which can be seen as a diamond pattern all over the image. The FFT filter may do the job or you could try noise removal and paint image detail back where required
